South Carolina’s attorney general is joining the fight against the Affordable Care Act, better known as Obamacare.

On Monday, Alan Wilson joined a 19-state coalition that has called Obamacare “unconstitutional.”

The coalition is urging a federal district court in Texas to rule that Obamacare’s individual mandate is unconstitutional and to enjoin the entire law.

“I’ve always fought for the rule of law and the preservation of freedom and this law is clearly unconstitutional,” Wilson said in a news release. “The U.S. Supreme Court has already ruled that Congress cannot force citizens to buy health insurance. I swore an oath to uphold the Constitution so I have to be part of this fight to throw out the law.”
